Kylie Jenner Done With All The Talk About Her Lips, 
Wants Something New

Dr. Gilda Comments

Kylie Jenner

"Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star Kylie Jenner posted a series of tweets Tuesday saying she was "bored" over the chatter about her lips and the speculation about her getting lip injections, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The 17-year-old took to her Twitter to respond to the rumors about her possible lip enhancement and told people to move on to new things. 

"How long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao," she tweeted.

"Let's get a our lives together guys and talk about some important shit," she added.

She then concluded her response with: "Just talk about something new at least. I'm bored."

However, Jenner's tweets neither confirmed nor denied the lip injection rumors.

There have been speculations about Jenner's use of photoshop or of her undergoing surgery after people started comparing her face, lips and skin in her various pictures, Radar reported. 

Jenner is the youngest daughter of Bruce and Kris Jenner, and the 17-year-old's supposed procedures might be a bid to keep up with the rest of her sisters.

Jenner addressed the plastic surgery rumors last spring saying through a tweet that the rumors hurt her feelings and that she found them "kinda insulting."

Despite refusing to confirm whether or not she has done any work on her lips or other parts of her body, Relationship Expert to the Stars Dr. Gilda Carle was of the opinion that Kylie most likely enlisted professional enhancing services, according to Hollywood Life.  Dr. Gilda claimed Jenner was "wasting her youth" in her quest for perfection.

"The girl is only 17, and has already had other body enhancements," Dr. Gilda said. "By the time she's in her twenties, she will have run out of body parts to improve - yet, still be unhappy that she hasn't reached perfection."

Dr. Gilda also added that "She's learning that her money can buy external perfection, without advancing her character as a human being."

The rumors about Jenner's bid to grow up follows her alleged relationship with 24-year-old rapper Tyga, according to TMZ. The two were spotted at England's Gatwick Airport on Friday, Oct. 17, on a trip around Europe. There have been speculations of the two dating though neither party has commented or confirmed the true nature of their relationship.

Geraldo with Dr. Gilda

It's always great to see my friend Geraldo.  He was on stage here, as host of Wounded Warrior Project gala that also celebrated the birthday of another friend of mine, news anchor Rita Cosby.

My History:  Geraldo's was the first TV show I appeared on, and I dedicated my first book to him.  He is the most generous host of all I've worked with.  God Bless him!

I attended the MasterMedia Breakfast to hear my friend, news anchor, Hattie Kauffman speak.  She's written "Falling into Place: A Memoir of Overcoming," and it's now in soft cover.  IT'S A GREAT BOOK OF SURVIVAL!!  

When we see our news anchors on TV, we have no way of knowing the pain behind their smiling faces.  This woman was the first Native American news anchor in this country, and her meager and very difficult alcoholic upbringing is inspiration for every reader.  And how she gracefully managed her divorce after 17 years of marriage from her cheating husband is a story I'll include in the rewrite of my own book, "How to WIN When Your Mate Cheats."  Bravo, Hattie Kauffman!!

5 Ways to Tell If Someone Is Emotionally Unavailable

“Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind…I kind of run from it when it
presents itself,” Taylor Swift told Vogue UK earlier this month. But you don’t
have to be a Grammy-winning international superstar with a hot new album to flee
from commitment. Regular folks—men and women—can be just as gun shy.
Some key signals from your first few meetings or dates can reveal volumes about
whether someone’s emotionally unavailable or open and ready to go the
relationship route, says Gilda Carle, PhD, a New York City-based therapist and 
author of Don’t Bet On The Prince!
Here, five questions that can show someone’s dating true colors:

Why did your last relationship end?

If they badmouth their ex, be wary: it’s a sign that they’re projecting their own issues
onto their past partner, Dr. Gilda says. You should also be cautious about
vague generalities about the breakup like “I was too young” or “I didn’t know what
I was doing” or “We wanted different things.” “It’s not always the specific things
people say but the information that they leave out that’s most telling,”
Dr. Gilda explains.

How do you get along with your parents?

If he rolls his eyes and mutters something disparaging about his dad, or she
badmouths her mom, run. “A good relationship with a same-sex parent gives
someone more self confidence, which leads to them feeling more comfortable with 
who they are,” Dr. Gilda says. “People with poor relationships with their same-sex 
parent tend to be angrier and more insecure.” Ditto how they feel about the opposite
sex parent (for straight folks). “The opposite sex parent is the first role model they’ve
ever had for men or women, so if they are trashing them, it’s a good indication about
how they feel about the opposite gender in general,” Dr. Gilda says.

How would you describe yourself?

“I once was on a date with a man who kept describing his dog as a real manly dog
who was on the hunt all the time—by the time we’d finished the appetizers, it was
clear he was talking about himself,” Dr. Gilda says. But the way he or she talks
about material possessions is also key: “If she seems more concerned about a
drop of red wine that she got on her Coach clutch or a chipped fingernail than
what you’re telling her, that’s a sign that her focus is on objects, not relationships,”
Dr. Gilda says.

Do you work really long hours?

Former mayor and business mogul Michael Bloomberg raised eyebrows when
he told reporters he goes to work to avoid “staying home and talking to Diana
about feelings,” but his words about his long-term girlfriend are telling.
“One reason so many people throw themselves into work is to avoid the
intimacy of a relationship,” Dr. Gilda says. While at first it may seem exhilarating
to date a master or mistress of the universe, if they use office deadlines as an
excuse to break plans or not call, tread carefully.

So, what did you think about George Clooney getting married?

Or “What do you think about Beyonce and Jay Z renewing their wedding vows?”
Of course, your date might simply not care about celebrity romances in general.
But assuming they’ve got at least a passing familiarity with Hollywood headlines,
their reaction can hint at their views on life partners in general.
“Clooney’s the epitome of the quintessential bachelor who never appeared to want
to settle down,” Dr. Gilda explains. And Beyonce and Jay Z represent a couple
who are determined to get through alleged rough patches together, without resorting
to divorce.
If your date grimaces and changes the subject, or makes a joke like “I don’t know
what they were thinking,” take note. “There are these little subtle hints early on that
reveal the person you’re sitting across from isn’t truly looking for a commitment,”
Dr. Gilda says.
